Now that you find yourself passing on your skills and knowledge to other paddlers, the British Canoeing Coaching Scheme would be an excellent way for you to advance those skills even further by becoming a coach.

British Canoeing provides a comprehensive coaching qualification scheme and coach education programme, which can be found at the following link Coaching Awards.

Further learning for your coaching can also be achieved by attending Endorsement Courses, Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Modules or Discipline Support Modules, please follow links for further information.

If you are already a British Canoeing coach keeping up to date is simple through further education via eLearning and other awards and qualifications.

Accredited Prior Learning (APL) is another avenue that British Canoeing has on offer. The APL process allows a coach or aspirant coach to apply to have any of their prior learning identified as being of equal or higher standard to a British Canoeing training course or award. British Canoeing recognises that an individual may have relevant experiences from other sports, countries and learning opportunities that they can bring to their Paddlesport coaching.
